|Yummy healthy sushi!|
Hello my dears,
time for some great, yummy and healthy cooking again:=). Two weeks ago, a lovely girlfriend of mine showed me a great recipe for making healthy sushi which she found on another blog “project for healthy living“. We thought it would be a great idea to try it out as it looked really easy to make and tasty as well. I honestly always thought that making sushi is very difficult and takes a loads of time. Nonetheless, this recipe showed us differently. I also found a similar recipe in Attila Hildmann’s book “Vegan for fit” which I already wrote about. Hence, I will make some kind of a summary of both recipes and tell you what I think is important. You can surely always mix using different types of vegetables, rice or quinoa depending on your taste. The sushi turned out be so easy to make & god-heavenly yummy;) that I wanted to make a larger dinner for 3 other couples which my boyfriend and I got many invites before and who are also very good cookers. So, the pressure was on:). I just used the amount of ingredients for 2 people and more or less multiplied it with 4 to serve sushi to 8 p.
Quinoa Sushi for 2 persons ( for 8 p. multiply with 4)–> everyhting bought in a bio supermarket:
- 200 g. tofu
- 1/2 cup of quinoa
- nuts puree
- 1/2 package of nori leafs
- 2 carrots
- 1 / 4 cucumber
- 1/2 Avocado
- soy sauce
First of all, you boil the quinoa for appr. 20 min in hot water. On its package it is described how much water you have to use for a certain amount. While the quinoa is cooking, you cut the vegetables in long, thin pieces. If you want to have more variety you can surely add other types of veggies. Then, you shortly fry the tofu in a pan until it turns slightly brown. When the quinoa is done, you mix it with two to three tablespoons of nuts puree to add some flavour.
After that, you put the sushi roll’s surface (the nori leaf) on a bamboo mat. You put the quinoa on the very front, make it flat and put some stripes on wasabi on it. On top, you put the vegetables and then roll the nori leaf into a sushi roll. After that you cut it into pieces. First sushi roll done! Isn’t that easy?
